Episode 53: Curry Chaos
Another day dawned on Youkai Academy and the students were going to class as usual. Today though would be special classes. They were purely optional for anyone who was interested and it would not affect their overall grades. The classes were Home Economics and Shop. Officially, the classes were open to either gender that was interested. However, all of the girls had someone they wanted to make a treat for and none of the boys wanted to be called a wuss so the girls went for Home Economics while the boys took Shop.
At the moment, the girls were holed up in the Home Economics classroom which was equipped with all of the modern conveniences which they would need in their lessons. Ingredients for dishes were lined up and stored in bulk so the whole class would have enough. The class was just beginning as the girls paid attention to their teacher.
"Alright girls! Today you're going to cook a super special dish! Curry!" Apsara-sensei, the Home Economics teacher, said to her class of girls. "Curry means spice! Spice means heat! Heat means an explosion!" Apsara-sensei was of Indian descent and wore a black and red sari. She had dark skin and blonde hair tied in the form of cones. She was always enthusiastic about cooking, especially her homeland's curry.
Moka, Kurumu and Yukari were wearing aprons and standing in front of kitchen stoves, waiting for instruction. Oddly enough, Mizore was absent for some reason. None of them could really guess why. Either she was ill, had not registered for this class, or had gone to stalk Wataru.
Meanwhile, Wataru was in Shop class with the boys. They were in their gym uniforms instead of the standard uniform because they could get dirty from the sawdust from all the sawing. Despite his rather frail appearance, Wataru liked Shop class and actually excelled in it, his talent at woodcraft passed down from his father. In that day's class they were allowed to make anything they desired, the teacher's way of determining just how skilled his students were at the art. Wataru used this chance to practice his violin making.
Suddenly, he was slapped in the back and yelped. "Ow!" He turned and glared, "Komiya-kun!" While he and Saizou wouldn't exactly be called friends, they were on now more peaceful terms as classmates. Maybe his near death experience and having his life saved by Wataru had changed the formerly thuggish student for the better.
Putting him in a friendly headlock, Saizou asked, "Say, Kurenai, what do you think the girls are making right now?" Wataru blinked, but Saizou continued speaking. "I mean those girlfriends of yours would definitely make something nice. I'm so jealous of you!"
Wataru had to take a moment to think about Saizou's question. He had already guessed that he may be lucky enough to taste what the girls were cooking in their class. However he did have to wonder how their creations would turn out. Kurumu generally stuck with baking sweets and things with sugar so he had to wonder how her other cooking would turn out. Yukari…had a habit of mixing magical ingredients with normal cooking ingredients by accident. Moka's cooking was the only normal one out of the lot, being quite nice if he had to admit it. Mizore on the other hand…
Come to think of it, he hadn't tasted Mizore's cooking before. Was that a coincidence or did she not feel confident enough in herself to make something? He admitted that he was curious, but he didn't want to be rude and just go up and ask her about it.
Moka was actually making proper curry but as she glanced over to Yukari's pot she saw that her concoction was green and had a frog's leg sticking out. "Ano, Yukari-chan, what's that?"
"It's curry," said Yukari, "I'm making it for Wataru-sama. This will also give him more energy." She hummed happily as she cooked and Moka didn't have the heart to tell her that she was making curry the wrong way. She then looked to Kurumu who was adding what appeared to be chocolate into her curry. She didn't like spicy things and decided to make sweet curry for Wataru to enjoy. She even poured bottles of aphrodisiacs and sexual performance enhancers.
Meanwhile, Kokoa was spying at the class from the outside and glared, "Hmph, how can a noble vampire like her lower herself to take such a class?" She wasn't alone thought as next to her was Mizore. "And why are you here?"
"This is one of my spying spots," Mizore answered.
"No, I mean why aren't you in there?" Kokoa asked. Mizore didn't answer and continued to watch. "Ah, I see. You can't cook so you're chickening out!"
Kokoa ended up in a block of ice soon after her cruel words.
Rey-Kivat landed on Mizore's shoulder and spoke, "You mustn't fret, Mizore-sama."
"If only I didn't have an aversion to fire," muttered Mizore, looking downcast. She wanted to cook for Wataru but as a Yuki-Onna she didn't like hot things. Open flames were painful to even stand near and hot days were torture. The heat from ovens were so bad to her, she had to wear heat resistant clothes to protect herself. She couldn't even use a microwave without waiting for it to cool down first.
Oh, she knew how to cook cold dishes, or even better make ice cold treats. She just didn't know how her mother was able to do it. The only lessons she had received so far in her life were on how to make the usual cold or frozen dishes. Her mother had said she wasn't ready to make the hot dishes like she could just yet.
Sighing, Mizore decided that she needed some cheering up. For her, that meant going to spy on Wataru. He was off in the Shop class so she would have to get creative with how she could sneak in without getting caught by anyone. However, she was good at sneaking into places she wasn't supposed to go. Maybe she could take a peek at what Wataru was working on. Perhaps it was a gift for one of them?
"Follow me Rey-Kivat," she whispered, sneaking off to find an air vent she could use to get into the school.
By lunchtime, Moka, Kurumu and Yukari joined Wataru at lunch to present to him their curry dishes. They had worked hard on them and their teacher was passionate in helping them get the recipes just right. However, Apsara-sensei had been really strict over what ingredients would go into the pots. The girls had to sneak their personal touches into their recipes lest the Home Economics teacher scold them.
Moka had followed the recipe as best she could, listening to what the teacher had told her. She had never made curry before so she decided to follow Apsara-sensei's advice. Kurumu on the other hand found the numerous spices the teacher called for to be way too hot for her liking. To try and make it milder, she had put flakes of chocolate into her curry and tried to sweeten it up for her Destined One. Lastly, Yukari had been adding her potion ingredients to try and make her own curry more energizing. Fish bones and a frog's leg were sticking out of her concoction.
Wataru saw that both Kurumu and Moka's curries looked normal enough but when he glanced at the green stuff that Yukari claimed as curry, he couldn't help but smile nervously. However, being the naturally nice guy that he was, Wataru couldn't bring himself to say anything bad about it and Yukari had tried really hard to cook for him.
"Wataru-sama, my special curry will energize you!" boasted Yukari as she put a fist to her chest. "I guarantee it!"
"Brat, there is no way he's gonna eat your slop!" Kurumu shot back. She turned to Wataru, smiling sweetly, "Wataru, why don't you try mine first?"
Moka added, "I don't know how good mine is, Wataru-kun," as she blushed while tucking some of her hair behind her ear, "I just hope you like it."
The miasma of depression seemed to be thick in the cafeteria. Boys glowered at Wataru.
"Damn, not only is he trying out Moka-san's curry, but he's also having Kurumu-san's!"
"Hey, that's our King for you!"
"I'll try yours first, Moka-san," said Wataru as he dipped the spoon into the rice and curry. However, before he could put it into his mouth, he felt a familiar chill.
"Wa-Ta-Ru~" Mizore said as she stood behind him. Wataru had not jumped. He had long gotten used to Mizore's quirkiness.
"Ah, Mizore-san," Wataru smiled. "Good afternoon."
"Wataru-san, I made you this," Mizore said, smiling and blushing as she presented her curry dish. It looked good.
The only problem was that it was inside a block of ice.
"Thank you, Mizore-san," said Wataru politely as he tapped on the ice with his spoon. "But…I don't know how to eat this."
Jeers were suddenly heard.
One cruel girl said, "Hmph, it looks like she can't cook. So sad. I mean what kind of girl doesn't know how to cook. All she has is her looks after all."
Laughter was heard.
"Oi!" Wataru stood up. "Don't you dare-" What he was about to say was cut off as a blizzard blew I, freezing not only the girl who had made fun of Mizore but the rest of the students too. Mizore then fled, crying. "Mizore-san! Chotto-ARGH!" He slipped and fell on some ice.
Mizore was standing at the lake, staring blankly at it as she tossed pebbles across the surface. On her shoulder was Rey-Kivat. "You shouldn't beat yourself up over it, Mizore-sama. You tried your best."
"What's the point of making curry if he can't eat it?" she asked as she tossed another pebble.
"It doesn't have to be curry," Rey-Kivat stated.
"I want to do this, Rey-Kivat. I want to make something nice for Wataru-san that isn't ice cold," she told her Kivat Clan partner.
"He likes your cold treats," Rey-Kivat said. "They refresh him."
"But they don't fill up the stomach," said Mizore. "I need to learn how to make curry he'll like."
Mizore loved Wataru, ever since she read his articles she had wanted to see him. She had assumed that like her he was lonely and in a way she had been right. However, unlike herself Wataru had reached out to others and had reached out to her, winning her heart. He had never doubted her.
A pebble skipped across the lake's surface, 6 times. Mizore, however, had not thrown it. "Wa…" She turned and saw Wataru, smiling.
"Mizore-san, why did you run?" he asked. Mizore turned away. "Please, talk to me." She was ashamed of herself. She had wanted to make curry but all she could give him was a cold block of ice. She felt his arms encircle her from behind. "Talk to me, tell me what's wrong."
"I…I can't…" she responded, trembling in his gentle embrace. Why did Wataru have to be so kind? Did he really treasure her feelings so much? Sometimes she felt that she didn't deserve him. She'd tried to freeze him and yet he'd come to her, offering his hand of friendship, and finally giving her the love she wanted.
"Sure, you can," he said softly. "Please, tell me what's wrong."
"I can't make curry," she said.
"Oh," Wataru responded, realizing what the problem was.
"The others can make curry, but I can't. I'm useless," she added.
"No you're not," he countered. "Stop saying things like that. You're not useless. Just because you can't make curry doesn't mean you're useless. You have other talents."
"I do?" Mizore asked.
"Yes, you do," he insisted strongly. "Look, you just need to practice. Like I did. I wasn't always good at the violin but every day I practiced, and practiced, and practiced, until I got it right. Of course the neighbors complained a lot." He chuckled at the memory. It seemed so far away. "And I did get upset and discouraged, but I never gave up. You shouldn't either."
Mizore leaned against his warm chest. "Wataru-san…"
Wataru leaned down and gently kissed her.
His words and kiss just made her want to try again. All she needed to do was get a fresh batch of ingredients.
Mizore returned to her dorm room. After buying her ingredients from the store she was ready to start again. "Wataru-san, this curry is for you."
She quickly got to work getting the vegetables and meats together. Picking up a carrot, she brought it to the cutting board before she transformed her hand into a single blade of ice. Quickly chopping up the ingredients into neat sections, she poured them all into the pot. It didn't take her too long, but she had long since mastered the art of chopping vegetables.
"Now for the tricky part," Mizore frowned, reaching for the dial on her stove.
The eerie silence surrounding the girls' dorm was quickly shattered by the scream of a Yuki-Onna.
"Ow! Ow!" Mizore whimpered stumbling away from the stove. The appliance had been turned on, but it was on the lowest setting. Even that was too hot for Mizore's sensitive body which was attuned for the coldest temperatures. "Hot! Too hot!"
Rey-Kivat sighed as he hovered nearby. This was becoming a routine for them since Mizore decided she wanted to make curry like the other girls did. Fortunately, a distraction came when he then heard a knock at the door. "We have a visitor."
"Can you answer it for me, Rey-Kivat?" Mizore asked as she nursed her burnt fingers, freezing them in ice.
Rey-Kivat nodded and went to the door. He hovered to the handle and grabbed the door with his feet. After a slight twist, he flapped his wings and pulled back. The door opened and in front of it was a familiar witch/maid whom both occupants knew well. Only this time she was dressed in a chef's outfit rather than her usual attire or maid uniform.
"Good evening, Mizore-san!" Ruby greeted.
"Ruby-san?" Mizore questioned, confused by her appearance.
"Goshujin-sama asked me to help you learn to make curry," the witch/maid said. As she entered the room, she took notice of the mess. In her thrashing of pain, Mizore had knocked over the pot of ingredients she had prepared. "What happened here?"
"Another disaster," Mizore frowned, ice pellets beginning to drop from her eyes. "I'm hopeless!"
"No, you're not hopeless," said Ruby soothingly as she knelt down to rub Mizore's back. "Let's clean this place up and we can start over. You still have all the necessary ingredients, don't you?"
"Plenty," Mizore answered. "I bought a lot to make sure I can try again and again until I get it right."
"Well, at least you're persistent," said Ruby. "Now, let Ruby-sensei teach you how to make curry!"
Within minutes the kitchen was filled with the smell of cooking meat mixed with a rainbow of spices, paprika, and turmeric. It had taken some ingenuity and an outfit usually reserved for scientists wanting to get near lava flows, but Mizore had done it. Under Ruby's watchful gaze Mizore presented her dish to Rey-Kivat. The Kivat Clan member managed to take a spoon into his wings before he managed to scoop out some of the food and get a taste. He rolled it in his mouth for a moment before shaking his head, "Way too bland."
Mizore sighed. There had to be a way to do this without feeling so hot. The heat resistant clothes had been good, but it left her unable to taste her own curry, which was likely why it was so bland to Rey-Kivat.
And then an idea hit her.
"Wait a minute..." Mizore murmured, "Maybe there is a way..."
Kokoa grumbled as she walked to class. She was lucky that Kouvat had been able to break her out of the ice before it melted. It was bad enough that she'd gotten frozen. She didn't want to touch water and be made powerless.
Kokoa opened a door and was about to step in when she stopped and realized that she was in the wrong classroom. "Oh, great! I got so caught up I didn't watch where I was going!" It was the Home Economics classroom.
"Oh, hello! I didn't hear the door open!" Kokoa blinked before she turned her head to see Apsara-sensei. "You must be Akashiya-san's little sister. I can see the family resemblance."
"Yeah, I got the wrong class, so if you could excuse me…" Kokoa said as she proceeded to exit only to be stopped by the cooking teacher.
"Oh, that's alright, dear. Frankly, you're just in time. You see I made this wonderful new batch of curry that I think everyone would love. It has just the perfect amount of spiciness!"
"No thanks," Kokoa grunted. She refused to eat something as lowly and pathetic as curry. Her superior vampire taste buds wouldn't agree with it.
"Now, don't be like that," Apsara-sensei said as she produced a plate of curry rice from nowhere and presented it to the vampire, who not only did not accept the dish but used a karate chop to send it crashing to the floor.
"I said no!" Kokoa snapped. "Now, if you'll excuse me, I gotta get to my class before I'm late!" She began walking away, ignoring the dark aura enveloping the teacher.
"Oh, Shuzen-san…" Apsara-sensei said, now angry.
"What is it now?" Kokoa snapped only to receive a face full of curry. "HOT!"
"I'm so jealous! Only that Wataru jerk got to eat all the wonderful curry and we didn't get one bite..." one of the boys muttered annoyed
"Well what do you want to do about it? It's impossible to fight that guy one on one."
Saizou ignored the boys as he was grumbling to himself. At least other girls presented those guys curry while he didn't get one stinking drop. He paused, however, when one of the boys taking a sip from the outdoor drinking fountain sputtered "Oi, what's wrong with you?" Saizou asked.
"Yeah what about it?" Saizou questioned.
"It's... It's curry." Saizou raised an eyebrow as he walked forward to take a sip.
His eyes widen in shock "Oh my god... IT IS CURRY!" Saizou shouted happily as he began to drink from it.
"HEY DON'T HOG IT!" one of the boys roared as they tried to pull Saizou away.
Mizore was absent for class. Wataru was worried as was Moka. Kurumu didn't seem to mind. However, they all knew that aside from when Kotsubo had been harassing her, Mizore had gone to class diligently. If something was keeping her away, then it must be rather serious. Eventually class gave out for lunch, letting the group to wander the halls as they tried to think of what happened to their friend.
"I hope Mizore-san's alright," said Wataru. She had seemed miserable the day before. He had sent Ruby to help her out. The maid/witch reported that Mizore was in much higher spirits by the end of the night, but it still didn't explain why she was missing.
"Me too," Moka added.
"I'm sure she's fine!" said Kurumu. She pretty much dismissed Mizore, but only on the surface. She was worried too.
As they turned a corner, they spotted Kokoa walking about. Rather than being haughty and picking fights like they had come to expect from her, they instead saw her prancing about with a smile on her face. It was a welcome change, but what made it all so very odd was the fact that her skin had turned yellow.
"Is it just me or is her skin yellow?" Wataru asked Yukari who nodded in response. Okay, so he wasn't seeing things after all.
"Onee-chan~!" Kokoa ran towards Moka with her arms open before capturing the pink-haired vampire in a hug. "I love you so much~curry!"
The effect of such a statement was instantaneous as Moka's eyes started tearing up. She had wanted so much to hear genuine affection coming from Kokoa. Now she was hearing and receiving it without restraint. It made her so happy.
Wataru, Kurumu and Yukari gawked.
"That's not normal," Kurumu stated.
"I think the yellow skin said it all," added Yukari.
"Did she just say curry?" Wataru asked.
The strange moment of sisterly affection was interrupted when Fong-Fong stumbled down the hall, skin bright yellow like Kokoa's with a really strange grin on his face. "Wataru-sempai! Please join us, curry!"
"Fong-Fong-san, for the last time I do not want to join the Triad!" Wataru told him.
"Triad?" Fong-Fong blinked. "Oh no, please join us!" He pulled out a plate of curry rice from out of nowhere and scooped some for a spoon, coming up to Wataru to feed him the food. "Join us…curry! Join us…curry!"
"OK, he's creepier than Mizore, and that's saying something!" Kurumu pointed out. More students began appearing from different hallways, sporting the same yellow skin tone. All of them smiling like they were high on something and moaning about curry being the source of all happiness. What made it more terrifying was that they were all grabbing the regular students, forcing them to eat curry which in turn made their skin yellow and put dopey grins on their faces.
"ZOMBIES!" Yukari screamed.
"Moka-san, we have to run!" Wataru reached for Moka but it was too late. Kokoa had fed her the curry as well and now her skin was yellow too. "Oh no! Moka-san!"
"Wataru-kun, the curry is wonderful~" Moka cooed. "Curry!"
Mizore arrived at school late, with a large pot strapped to her back. It was the result of all her hard work. "Finally, this is the curry I will feed my Wataru-san." As she entered the building, she noticed something odd. Everyone was walking around like zombies, moaning the word 'curry' over and over. They also had bright yellow skin. Even stranger was that their lips were all puffy and swollen, like they had eaten a lot of spicy foods. It was a very strange sight, even though it was a school for supernatural beings. "What happened here?"
"Is that curry?"
"Give me the curry!"
The yellow-skinned zombies began to turn their attentions towards Mizore, reaching out to try and grab the pot of curry on her back. They looked absolutely desperate for it, like they were addicted and were being forced to go without.
"No, this is Wataru-san's curry!" Mizore shouted as she fled from the growing horde. Suddenly, a figure landed in between her and the mob of zombies and lashed out, knocking them all down. "Saga?"
It was Kamen Rider Saga as he withdrew his Jacorder Bute Mode. He was panting slightly, indicating that he had possibly been fighting for a while. "Mizore-san, are you OK?"
"I am," Mizore nodded. "What happened?"
"It's a curry zombie epidemic," said Saga. "I don't know how it started but by noon all the students and even the teachers have turned into curry zombies." He took a moment to catch his breath. "They all just swarmed into the classroom, forcing people to eat curry which made them into zombies. I had Gin take Mio and run while I transformed to fight them. I haven't seen them since."
"How did this happen?" asked Mizore
"I don't know myself," was the Rider's reply. "I've heard of zombification spells but never through curry."
"What about Wataru-san? Is he OK?"
"I haven't found him."
"Taiga-san…" The two heard a moan and looked to see Mio with Gin. However, Saga grimaced as he realized that they both sported yellow skin.
"Dammit, they got infected!" Saga cursed. "Mizore-san, I think you should transform, now!"
Mizore nodded. Transforming would prevent herself from being turned into a curry zombie. She called, raising her arm, "Rey-Kivat!"
A window shattered as Rey-Kivat made his entrance. He had heard his mistress' call. "I am here, Mizore-sama!" He went towards her raised hand and sunk in his fang. Ice formed around her waist and shattered, taking the form of the Rey Belt.
"Henshin," Mizore called softly as Rey-Kivat went to the belt and hung himself upside down from the Power Roost.
"Henshin!" Rey-Kivat repeated as a giant snowflake materialized and shattered in front of Mizore before enveloping her in the armor of Kamen Rider Lady Rey.
"I'll hold these guys off," said Saga as more curry zombies appeared. "You go find my brother and your friends! Go!"
Lady Rey didn't need to be told anything else as she dashed to find Wataru. She had to find her beloved and save him! Oh, and save her friends too she added as an afterthought.
Lady Rey ducked and dodged the curry zombies who tried to claim her pot of curry as she ran up towards the roof. She had looked everywhere but there. She just hoped she was right.
She was. She saw her friends all seated in a circle, with yellow skin and eating curry rice. "Wataru-san!" Lady Rey cried.
Wataru's skin had turned yellow as well, with swollen lips from eating so much curry. "Curry…" he said in a hoarse voice. His throat felt sore but he couldn't get enough of the delicious curry. He wanted more. So much more.
Lady Rey knelt down at his side and put to down her pot. She gently caressed Wataru's face. "Yes, I have curry, just for you."
"DON'T YOU DARE FEED THEM THAT FAKE CURRY!"
Lady Rey looked up from her man and spotted Apsara-sensei glaring down at her from atop the water tower. She wasn't dressed in her usual outfit, but looked like she was wearing something out of a harm movie or something. Her hair had changed slightly, the length forming into two 'horns' at the back of her neck. She was exuding power that she wasn't when she was in class, making Lady Rey suspect that she was in her true form. The weird part was that there was a ridiculously large dish of curry balancing on her head.
"You did this," Lady Rey frowned, correctly guessing the woman's role in things.
"Correct you blasphemer against curry!" Apsara-sensei frowned. "How dare you try to feed anyone that slop!-?"
"Why did you do this?" asked Lady Rey, ignoring the insult in favour of getting to the heart of the matter.
"Why? Why you ask?" the Indian woman asked irately. "I do it to spread the glory that is curry, that's why! It's an underappreciated food that does not receive the respect it deserves. Worse yet, those that eat it dare try to tone down the spices, destroying its natural flavor!"
Lady Rey wanted to sweatdrop, but her helmet prevented it. That was it? She was turning everyone in the school into her curry zombies just so she could force them all to admit that curry was the best food ever like she thought? Usually when someone turned the local population into zombies, it was because they had something more malicious like trying to take over the country or something similar in mind. It really made her wonder what the headmaster was thinking when he hired people like her.
Ignoring Apsara-sensei in favor of Wataru, Lady Rey took out a plate and filled it with ice shavings. She then put a ladle into her pot and took out a good helping of curry which she poured over the ice shavings. "Here, Wataru-san. Eat," she said, handing her beloved the dish.
"No, that's not real curry!" Apsara-sensei shouted, but she was ignored. Wataru took the dish and began to gulp it down. Oddly enough, his puffy lips began to shrink as the ice and curry began to cancel out the spiciness of Apsara-sensei's overindulgent recipe.
"The spiciness and the coldness blends so well," said Wataru as he continued eating. He smiled at Lady Rey who blushed under her helmet. "Thank you, Mizore-san."
"It's my pleasure, Wataru-san," said Lady Rey kindly. "You can have the rest. I have something to take care of." She stood to full height and clenched her fists, her aura cold as ice as she glared at Apsara-sensei.
"It's time to put her on ice," suggested Rey-Kivat.
"Agreed," nodded Lady Rey.
"Oh, no you don't!" Apsara-sensei attacked…with dishes of curry rice. They were thrown through the air, aimed at Lady Rey. However, she unleashed a blizzard of her own and froze the dishes in midair, sending them crashing to the ground. Apsara-sensei, however, did not give up and continued her assault which Lady Rey countered. "If a small helping won't reach you, then how about THIS!" She held up a LARGE plate of curry rice and hurled it towards Lady Rey.
"Mizore-sama, we need to dodge!" shouted Rey-Kivat. She did, but unfortunately Wataru and the rest of her friends were hit. As soon as they crashed against the roof entrance, a bright flash of crimson light burst forth. Walking out from the dust cloud was none other than Moka's inner self, Moka-sama. However, her skin was also yellow.
"I guess transforming didn't change a thing," said Rey-Kivat, referring to the skin tone.
Wataru also stood up, but now his Fangire markings were visible as well as a scowl as he wiped his lips. "The bitch ruined my lunch, curry!" Kurenai was definitely in control now, if not slightly influenced by Apsara-sensei's recipe still. He turned to Moka-sama. "Let's teach her a lesson." Moka-sama nodded as Kurenai called, "Kivat!"
Kivat came swooping down, looking a little dazed and his eyes were yellow, matching the shade of the other zombies' skin. However, he swooped into Kurenai's raised hand before chomping down on his opposite limb, "Curry gabu!"
Kurenai quickly transformed into Kiva which was thankfully yellow-free save for where it was supposed to be. Both he and Moka-sama began to advance on the apsara when Lady Rey held out her hand, stopping them both.
"This one is mine," she spoke coldly. "I will deal with her. If it pleases you, please help Taiga-san keep the other zombies at bay. He's been fighting alone for a long time now."
"Tsk!" Moka-sama hissed, obviously displeased by being ordered around but she knew when someone had a personal stake in a battle. More than she did anyway.
"Very well," Kiva nodded. "Since it is Nii-san." He turned to Moka-sama. "Let's go, Moka-san!"
Moka-sama said to Lady Rey, "Let her know her place," and Lady Rey nodded in response. She then went and followed after Kiva.
Apsara-sensei growled, "You…you…how dare you do that to my curry!" She seemed to radiate with a fiery aura. "My ultra spiciness will not be denied!" She started hurling curry dishes at Lady Rey rapidly and the Rider froze them in midair.
"It's time we finished this," said Rey-Kivat. Lady Rey couldn't agree more. She skated along a surface of ice, dodging Apsara-sensei's assault. At the same time she coated her right arm in ice and allowed it to grow and become a huge fist made of her element. Apsara-sensei's eyes widened as she saw Lady Rey speeding towards her and she let out a scream too late as the fist connected.
"KNOW…YOUR…PLACE!" Lady Rey shouted, quoting Moka-sama. Apsara-sensei howled as she was sent flying into the sky.
Meanwhile, Moka-sama had a feeling someone was using her favorite line as she knocked out several male students who were getting a bit too grabby for her taste.
Fortunately, Mizore had made plenty of curry for everyone at school and soon Apsara-sensei's curry zombification was cured. It seemed that part of its power was in the spiciness, which was cured thanks to the ice in Mizore's recipe. It certainly cured them of their horrible-looking yellow skin. Speaking of the teacher, she was suspended for a week for her actions. She never had any real malicious intent. She was just overly passionate about curry and wanted everyone to see it her way.
The following day, at lunch, Mizore made kakigori for her friends. After the events of the day before they didn't feel like eating anything spicy for a very long time. In fact they wanted to forget it ever happened. It had been super embarrassing for them to act like complete fools for curry and they just wanted to move on.
"This is good," Yukari sighed as she ate her frozen treat.
"The coolness is like paradise on my tongue," Mio sighed, happy for the change in menu.
"After yesterday, I don't want to hear about curry for a long time," Taiga nodded.
"So sweet, so good," Moka beamed.
"Delicious," Wataru agreed.
"Just what do you do with this to make it so good?" asked Kurumu. She hoped it could apply to her cookies. She didn't want Mizore to get the one-up on her in anything, especially when it came to making treats for their man. "What's the secret ingredient?"
"Can't you tell?" Mizore smiled, sidling up to Wataru and taking his arm. "It's love."
KAMEN RIDER CHROME: And so we close the curry chapter and Lady Rey gets her fight in here. Well, next up we have some more high school hijinks from the Rosario+Kiva gang. Hope you enjoy this chapter as much as we did reading it.
